Elevate Your Character with the Characters of Christmas
There's more to Christmas than buying gifts and the traditional songs we enjoy each year. In Jesse Duplantis' latest book, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year-- Uncommon Lessons from the Christmas Story, you'll be inspired to live a higher life of faith by exploring the wonder of God's mysterious ways in the lives of people, both ancient and modern. Broken into five key sections, Dr. Duplantis shares personal insights on some of the more unusual elements of the Christmas story through lessons on:
CAESAR AUGUSTUS--How the unconscious obedience of an unbeliever worked to facilitate God's plan for Christ's birth, and how to recognize when God uses this same unusual method in your life, too.
JOHN THE BAPTIST--How God prepared the way for Jesus' first coming by sending a unique, pure-living and straight-talking forerunner, and how it's very likely He will send even more forerunners before His Son returns to earth once again.
THE WISE MEN--How science and spirituality converged to bring "three rich Gentiles" from foreign lands to honor The King of Kings, and what we can learn for our own lives from the humble and generous Magi about abundance, obedience, great intentions, and generosity.
MARY, MOTHER OF JESUS--How the character of Mary was more praised and important to God than sexuality, and how we can learn more about strength of character, faith in God, urgency in obedience, and the sacred feminine bonds of divine connections.
JESUS, SON OF GOD--How the God of the universe and beyond became the "baby in the manger" we see portrayed at Christmas, illuminating our own existence and bringing hope, light, and joy to the world by becoming "God with skin." You'll be inspired to see the manger in a new light, and will be reminded that the story of Jesus isn't over yet
Take a fresh look at the manger and beyond with Dr. Jesse Duplantis in The Most Wonderful Time of the Year--Uncommon Lessons from the Christmas Story.
